Kaz has moved onto the next phase of his rehab. He has thrown long toss up to about 60 feet and has had no problems. I think he will make the opening day start

News on him is that they are letting the swelling go down before doing anything else. He is receiving treatment (ice/hot etc) and then they will re-evaluate when he can throw again. He is still on track to throw in about a week and half. Scotty is adamant that he will start the opening day of the season, but the Rays are being very cautious so u may see them hold him back a few starts if they think it is best.


Are they planning on another MRI once the swelling is gone to see if anything was missed?


Not at this time. They are confident that the first MRI showed what was going on. I think if he starts to throw and there is any swelling, they will do another one



This is kind of off topic, but why NOT take a second MRI? Is there some other factor I'm not seeing besides just cost of running the test? For me it seems better to be safe than sorry...

They could see everything just fine on the first MRI and there has been no swelling there really is no reason to do so

He does and that is why he can't get the complete games and why his walks were up. Sometimes he will get up in a count and keep trying to get that strikeout pitch and than it extends the AB and causes him to go deeper in counts and raise his pitch count

Yeah I guess that was kind of a stupid question. I just feel like players sometimes seem reluctant to get an MRI because it gives this false sense of un-healthiness. Maybe I'm just being paranoid }:-)

Anyway as long as he is healthy I see Kaz as nothing less than a top 5 pitcher...

Deeray dominates about 50% of this thread, but thats probably why he's such a great asset to this site. Great info man ;-D
